I'm pretty sure FC4 repos already exist on download.fedoralegacy.org, we just need to populate them with a yum-config package. > 2) Are there plans in place for the upcoming Fedora Core 6 to have in > place packages to allow users to start pulling from Fedora Legacy > repositories once FC6 goes legacy?

FC5 shipped with Legacy repo files that pointed to a mirror list (which points back at download.fedoralegacy.org). Same with FC6. Our keys are put on the system to. A user need just flip the '0' to '1' to enable Legacy updates. > 3) Fedora Legacy repositories and build infrastructure.

Sounds like > planning is (eventually) needed. I plan to get us moved over very soon. The only bits of our infrastructure that should remain is enough to keep RHL going until we can phase it out. I'm thinking in 6 months time? After that the content will become unchanging as we'll be publishing into download.fedora.redhat.com space and its mirrors. > 4) Has the community reached any kind of consensus on the issues of > potentially retiring Red Hat Linux 7.3, Red Hat Linux 9, Fedora Core > 1, Fedora Core 2? The best plan I heard thus far was to phase out FC1 and 2 at the proper time (when FC6 reaches test2 and we get FC4), but give RHL 6~ months to get moved to something better. > 5) Are there other items, either of a technical or political nature we > need to do before we become the stewards of Fedora Core 4's security > and critical bug fix updates?

WORKSFORME Trying to setup a time is a nightmare though. Lets start the bidding at 14:00 UTC (which is 10:00am Eastern Daylight Time, otherwise known as Red Hat standard time (: ) -- Jesse Keating RHCE (geek.j2solutions.net) Fedora Legacy Team (www.fedoralegacy.org) GPG Public Key (geek.j2solutions.net/jkeating.j2solutions.pub)
